Sadly I can't, the reason is the cost to repair the bloody thing. I swear I am so angry with Canon cameras at the moment. It is going to cost £850 plus to repair, given the second hand retail price for a Mk3 and the fact for an extra £800 you could get a 1d mk4 I told them not to bother with the repair.
Basically the shutter was going to need completely replaced, a new mirror and asscoiated parts also a sensor was not working at all, then a service and some of bits and bobs, which I had thought, I had for some time had a nagging feeling something wasn't right with the camera, images just weren't quite right, missing shots etc. I put this down to me rather then the camera, after all I was doing flight shots. To say I am not happy is an understatement, I'm still undecided as to what I should do next stick with Canon or sell the lot and switch brands after all is the 1d mk4 going to be any better? Here is a brief run down with the troubles I have had with the Mk3: Lens stuck to camera body due to faulty lens release button, 1 faulty sensor (again!!!), factory recall due to mirror sticking in the up posititon (same as current problem!!!), faulty shutter button which left the camera unable to take an image and countless firmware updates to solve the autofocus issues, 1 leaky battery that leaked into battery charger....doen't install confidence does it? Enough bitching here are some images from a camera that canon should've stuck with...the 1d mk2.

The Kestrel's don't seem to bother the Sandmartins at the moment and they seem to know that too, I did manage a few images, still not happy though.....when am I ever?
